Trivia

The game was temporarily removed from sale in Australia, for re-rating. The objectionable content was the player's ability to collect a prostitute, who would sit in the car's passenger seat; if the car came to rest in a secluded area, it would begin to rock violently, implying sex (although both characters remain, unmoving, in their respective seats and stare forwards). What made the content objectionable for the Australian Censorship Board is that you could kill the prostitute after the act was done, therefore deeming it "sexualised violence". A censored version for Australia, removing this ability, was thus released, as was done for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002). See more »

Goofs

When you get into a police car you receive a shotgun. The gun is strangely a Remington "Folding Stock" Shotgun, in reality police officers carry a 12 Gauge Shotgun in their cars and have the ammo separated from the gun, not already loaded. See more »

Just awesome
21 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

To put it simply, Grand Theft Auto 3 is one of the very best video games, or any form of entertainment for that matter, ever made.

You've probably heard about how graphically violent this game is, and there's certainly no denying it. People (criminals, gang members, cops, pedestrians, etc.) can be murdered in a variety of entertaining ways, but GTA3 isn't about mindless mayhem. The game is actually story driven, and that, combined with awesome gameplay (driving being a main factor of course) is what really puts it over the top. It's quite an experience as you rise through the ranks from petty Jack-of-all-trades thug-for-hire to a millionaire. Chock full of tons of fun missions, from carjacking to assassinations to body disposal and anything else your employer needs you to do.

Enough of my pretentious praise though. If you haven't played Grand Theft Auto 3 yet, what are you waiting for?!
